Blue Choice

As a consumer, you make choices every day. Why should your health benefits be any different?

Blue Choice plans help you and your family stay healthy by providing practical benefits that you’ll use on a regular basis and affordable protection against the high cost of unexpected illness and accidents. You get access to a wide range of benefits to support you through all ages and stages of life.

Build a plan as unique as you are in two easy steps

  • Step one – Choose the plan options that meet your needs.
  • Step two – Contact Alberta Blue Cross and we will walk you through the online application process

Your extended health, dental and drug coverage levels do not have to match. You are free to build your plan your way!

Portability plan

Blue Choice Portability

In the future, you may have an opportunity to acquire group benefits through an employer. But there’s no need to leave your Blue Choice plan behind. By converting to the Blue Cross Portability, you maintain the option to resume coverage in the future without a medical review by contacting us within 30 days of when your employer plan terminates. This guarantees you and your family will always have access to an Alberta Blue Cross individual plan, regardless of what medical conditions may develop.

Contact us at 1-800-394-1965 if you have any questions or would like to enrol in the Portability plan.
